The Rhea County Domestic Violence Council wants you to walk a mile in the shoes of a domestic violence victim.
That was the subject of a Thursday program — “In Her Shoes” — sponsored by the domestic violence council that aimed to provide program participants with a better understanding of what it’s like to be a victim of domestic violence.
“Our goal is to raise awareness and have people realize that it’s not as easy as just getting out of [an abusive] relationship,” Rhea County Domestic Violence Council Executive Director Samantha Crisp said. “Nobody plans to get into one of these relationships. It’s hard to say what you would or wouldn’t do until you are in that situation.”
